Get to Wessington Springs, South Dakota!
A great place to spend a day, a weekend, or the rest of your life! This is our motto because our rural community has so much to offer people seeking a safe, peaceful, yet progressive community to call home!
Locally owned Café, Steakhouse & Lounge, Bar & Grill and several convenience stores afford many choices in food and drink. A 9-hole golf course and country club, plus a trap club with skeet shooting and duck tower provide physical challenges to interest the outdoor enthusiast.
Wessington Springs recently completed renovation and upgrades to several nature & historic trails in our sprawling 48-acre city park, with RV and tent camping available. Those who enjoy lodging with the comforts of home may arrange a stay in our hotel, or any one of our hunting lodges, some of which are open year round! During the summer you may cheer for our amateur baseball team, attend our SDRA Rodeo event, play disc golf, or just enjoy a relaxing day at the city pool. During the cooler months, there are many athletic events hosted through our nationally accredited K-12 school system — our students, parents and community members are strong fans of basketball, wrestling, volleyball, soccer, bowling, and the like.
Wessington Springs preserves its rich history through the Jerauld County Heritage Center. It is host to eight sites on the National Historic Registry including a Carnegie Library (one of the very few still being used for its intended purpose). Wessington Springs also features a restored 1905 Opera House, Shakespeare Garden with Anne Hathaway Cottage (a thatch roof structure that was built following the design of the original structure in Stratford-on-Avon, England), and the historic Jerauld County Courthouse.
Our full business district includes a grocery store, auto sales, Hardware & Variety store, consignment and flower shops, public transportation, pharmacy and superb medical campus with emergency services, long-term care, and wellness center. Agriculture, with targeted service industries, and great hunting round out the fantastic opportunities available for both locals and those interested in relocating to our fine community!
